    Thomas Muller: "We're not careless or arrogant. We're dominant'

    Comment

      This is a really great Tumblr: http://fycharliesangels.tumblr.com/ How can anyone not love Cheryl Ladd from that era? Un.fucking.real.

      I've started the season with Santa Clara pretty well. The first three matches were a gauntlet, Beira-Mar, Académica, and Vitória de Guimarães. All of them are predicted to finish in the top four (Vitória picked to win the league). I drew with Beira-Mar 1-1, got beaten 2-1 by Académica after I equalized in the 80th minute, and stole (really) a big three points against Vitória.





      Sitting 9th after three games. The board and fans are expecting me to fend off relegation (media prediction is 12th), so I'll take that result. I'm worried about the massive amount of debt the club is carrying though.

      So far two MLS jobs (Chicago and Houston) have opened up and the media has asked me about both of them, I told them I'm not interested which delighted Santa Clara. It's not out of loyalty though, it's just that I'm waiting for one of LA's rivals (San Jose or Chivas USA).

      Edit: Just realized SJ's not in this game!

        A few days ago Deadspin posted one of their reviews of morning sports radio shows and talked about how Katherine Webb was thankful to Brent Musberger for "jump-starting" (or just starting, really) her career in television by repeatedly saying how attractive she was during the BCS title game. Someone in the comments said that she's "80s hot", which is something that I hadn't thought about before but seems to really hit the nail on the head. I guess I'm pretty into that, though more specifically the late 70s - early 80s type. Bo Derek in "10" is basically the epitome of that, I'm 100% certain she's entirely to explain for my affinity for women with cornrows. She's actually still hot to this day.

        This could really use some input from Yoss.



        So a third of the way through the season and we're doing pretty well, sitting fourth though that could drop a few spots depending on other results. You can see that Académica and Beira-Mar are threatening to gap the league. Beira-Mar are actually in the UEFA Cup too because they got to the final of the Taça last year. Vitória started slowly but they seem to have turned the corner.



        Results including the Taça de Portugal win against lower division Machico. Very few of the games have been comfortable, but the results are all that matters. That loss against Chaves SUCKED, my goalkeeper got injured and the backup conceded a ridiculously soft goal.

        If I can take 18 points every 10 games I'll be pleased with that.

          Hahahaha, Santa Clara! That's my gf's team!(she's from Açores)

          You should reach for loans from Porto/Benfica/Sporting, that should get you players who are decent enough for promotion and you don't have to spend a lot of money!

            The Azores suddenly became a lot more interesting!

            Yeah, I'm looking at some players I can bring in on loan. I have to offload some first though because I've filled my registration. I'm desperately in need of some depth on the left side of the field. I have three players for two positions (one AM L, one DL, and one who can do both).

                  Haha I love the confusions between the database history of the clubs and the history created in the save games, classic CM/FM.

                    Haha, that's the second time I've gotten that error. I remember getting it in the FA Cup when I drew United in an old save after they'd won it like 4 times in a row.

                      Not bad. Not bad at all.

                      The Porto result was bad though. Oh it was really bad.

                        Twenty games down annnnnnnnd...





                        We're playing like shit.



                        I think I did all of that during that little skid. It was so frustrating to watch them continually shit the bed no matter what changes I made. I really need Nene (a solid defensive midfielder from Cape Verde I got on a free in the summer) back. The team is like a boat without a rudder without him.

                        Despite playing like that I'm actually not that far off the playoff spot (I am *not* reaching 1st). We'll see. I'd be happy with anything above 8th, honestly.

                        WWE/Portugal related: Alto Montoya was Justin Credible.

                          Ugh. Probably just blew my chance by not taking three points off Rio Ave in a match I dominated from start to finish. Just couldn't score. To make it worse, Vitória lost this week, that doesn't happen often.

                          That loss against Chaves early in the year just keeps getting shittier and shittier!

                          Fábio Coentrão is on Rio Ave and he's way too good for this division.

                                My skinny, Southern ass is not cut out for snow. Some people here find snow to be charming and romantic, but that's only because we so rarely get it, if we got it all the time they'd probably hate it. I don't like it.

                                I didn't know that Nelly Furtado is Azorean, well Azorean-Canadian, and from São Miguel (where Santa Clara is from) no less. I love her. I know some people think she's 'eh' but that ass, man, that ass.

                                Ponta Delgada is also twinned with Fall River, Mass., which is a really big deal in the history of American soccer.

                                You learned something today.

                                To my game then:



                                Got promoted! But it was far from straight-forward.



                                Vitória completely hit the skids toward the end of the season, but it's not like I didn't...



                                The Fatima game was particularly awful, the 2-1 scoreline was extremely flattering to me and honestly had they won 6-0 it would've been justified. Completely abject performance only saved by Rio Ave losing on the same day. The draw against Estoril wasn't great either but it was beautiful compared to the previous performance. Thankfully Zezinho finally decided to rectify his form -- which at the time was somewhere below a microwaved turd and above Arsenal vs. Blackburn today -- and scored against Lamas.

                                We really backed into it, but it's cool to have done it. Probably my best FM achievement in awhile (I usually just fool around with Arsenal or Milan). I do fear what's going to happen to them next season though, the debt is pretty high and I need to bring in some new players to stave off relegation. I might take a Premier League job if it comes open, I really want to get back into playing the Champions League.

                                If the Charlie's Angels special "Love Boat Angels" ever comes on, do yourself a favor and watch it.
